I apologize sincerely; I shouldn't have missed it before sending you
the pull request. (stupid copy-paste across files is certainly no
excuse for this).

This got caught in for-next too, but right after I sent the pull-request :(.

I also shouldn't have sent it so late in the merge cycle - this could
certainly wait till -rc2, which would've helped me correct it before
the request to you. Serves me right to try and meet the merge-cycle
deadline in a jet-lagged state!

I will definitely take extra precautions next time onward, so you
don't see negligence like this in my requests to you.

Apologies again!
